A member of the RAF from Norfolk has been selected to fly with the Red Arrows as part of their back-seat support crew.
Senior Aircraftman Mike Skoyles, 28, from Gorleston, will be a working with the team of daredevil stunt-pilots as an engineer.
The support team, known as the Circus, is responsible for servicing the aircraft before and after displays.
"It is a great honour to be selected for the Red Arrows' Circus," said Mike.
Mike will be one of a ten-strong team of engineers. Each member is assigned to a specific aircraft and pilot throughout the 2010 summer display season.
He will travel as a passenger in one of the Red Arrows' two-seat Hawk aircraft to more than 90 display venues throughout the UK and Europe - flying at speeds of more than 350mph (563.3km/h).
Once his plane arrives at the display's operating base, Mike will be responsible for servicing it before it can fly again.
"I'm looking forward to the busy summer display season. It will be exciting to get a bird's eye view of the country and fly over where I used to live," said Mike.
"I always wanted to join the Royal Air Force. Working with the Red Arrows really is the icing on the cake for me - it's a boyhood dream come true!" he added.
As Circus 2, Mike will be paired with Red 2, Flt Lt Ben Plank.
Mike joined the Royal Air Force in 2000 as a mechanical technician.
After finishing his training he was posted to RAF Waddington on the Nimrod R1 aircraft.
He has been on many detachments overseas including the Middle East, Canada, the USA and Italy.
The Red Arrows made their last appearance in Norfolk at the 2009 Cromer Carnival.
